Re: If Smith returns....HYPOTHETICALLY speaking.....
 
I understand Smith's feelings on this. After am excellent career, who wants to go out that way?

My dad had something similar happen -- after 35+ years in his remarkable career and 2 months from retirement he had a mild heart attack (thankfully, he was OK, and this was 16 years ago now, and he's not had any follow up issues). But he didn't want to leave on that note, and so after being out for about 5 months, he un-retired and went back to work. In fact, he ended up working for another 7 years or so, and added a number of other huge accomplishments to his considerable list of achievements.

Points being that he wanted to retire on his terms, and probably wasn't ready to leave the career he loved when he was set to retire initially in any event.

I bet that Smith is feeling the same way. And I wish him every success as he pursues that goal. He's surely earned the right to do so.

Smith hopes to be back "at some point" . . . if he is healthy in 2020 why not? They will only have 2 QBs under contract. And they will still be paying him.

I am not against Smith coming back, in fact, I probably would want to do same thing if I was him. I am just saying that I don't see how this will work out for Smith and Redskins since we drafted Haskins. Only scenario I can see where Smith returns to Redskins is if he accepts mentor/back-up role.

The Haskins pick mean we have officially moved on...there is no way Alex plays this year. Let Alex continue to heal and help Haskins in the classroom. There is no way I’m hoping for Alex to return as the QB for Skins bc that mean Haskins is failing.

And if I pack on 20lbs of muscle and grew 8 in taller I may be able to look like The Rock but that ain't happening either, LOL.

Re: If Smith returns....HYPOTHETICALLY speaking.....
 
I think it is extremely wishful thinking by Alex, and i wish him the best and hope that he gets back to 100% health and his day to day life gets back to normal. It just seems so hard to imagine a guy coming back from that horrible an injury at his age, he would be what, at least 37 by the time he gets back to 100% health, if he ever gets there.

But he has always taken such good care of his body, perhaps he comes back at 37/38 and gets to play a few more years. As others have said on here, late 30's to 40 isn't really that old for a QB any more these days, but i do think it changes a little bit when you have had the injuries he's had.

Tom Brady could probably put on cruise control and play to at least 45 as long as he suffers no major injuries, maybe even longer. I think Brees could do the same. But they didn't have a gruesome injury like Alex Smith. Still wish him the best though and hope he gets peace with it, in the event that he can't come back.

Checkdown Alex is garbage. He needs to retire. We need to do everything we can to get him off of our books. We must release him as soon as possible.

I think httr stands for hater. Seriously, dude, referring to the man as “garbage” is just wrong. There aren’t two categories of QB - elite and garbage. Smith has had a nice career and had us up two games in the NFCE when hurt. Give the man a little respect.

Unfortunately, the cap hits will be enormous

2019 - 42 million
2020 - 32 million
2021 - 10.8 million

I'm thinking the same way as you...with McCoy, Keenum, and Haskins the QB position became a bit crowded....the only other two ways out of this situation would be if the Redskins either trade Smith or release him.

[U]Trade Smith[/U]?! Trust me on this one, no team is going to trade for Smith for several reasons that should be obvious.

Also, how would the QB position become crowded if Smith were to come back? The reality is that McCoy and Keenum are not NFL starter quality players and Haskins is an unproven rookie.

Most likely scenario is to release him next year as a designated June 1 cut

He will not play again, he has to say "I hope to play again" of course he says that eating up millions to rehab, we all knew he wouldn't retire and walk away from that payday.
